                             BLADECATCHER (Bassline)
                             As recorded by Mastodon
                      (From the 2007 Album BLOOD MOUNTAIN)

Transcribed by Ryne Allen (ryneallen@hotmail.com)

This isn't 100% correct but it's pretty damn close. The only parts i'm unsure of is the
at about 2:36 into the song. The other part i'm not sure of is the riff that ties back
the beginning riff of the song. Other than that it should be pretty accurate. Listen to 
song to help with the timing. METAL UP YOUR ASS!!!

the fast bit sounds a bit wrong to me, on the album im hearing this:

|-------------------------------------------------------------------
|-------------------------------------------------------------------
|---------------------------------------------3--6-3-6-3-2--5-2-5-2-
|-2--5-2-5-2-3--6-3-6-3-2--5-2-5-2-3--6-3-6-3-----------------------

on the dvd with the special edition of the album it shows you them playing it in their practise space with no wierd sound effects over the top so you can hear it better.

Other than that, not bad =)

idk either i'm playing this tab completely wrong or it is competely wrong. The person who commented before me may have a good idea of the fast part, and maybe the rest is correct if you play it fast enough, i'm not sure though, i'm gonna try this song again with the new intro.

I want to post or [tab]
